Dr. Joe Scarfili runs. He’s a runner. It’s how he copes with emotional pain.
When his wife was murdered, he ran from violent Detroit to insular Grosse Pointe. He ran from his smothering, caring family to long hours in the operating room. But when he falls for Gianna, another run could cost him everything.
Nurse and entrepreneur Gianna Donnatelli is on the verge of making her dreams come true. Her company is poised to go public with a product guaranteed to revolutionize medical care and at the same time help revitalize Detroit, only she’s attacked, stalked, and flattened by an explosion. Then the danger escalates.
With Gianna’s life at stake, Joe can’t run. Despite the fact that he has no police or tech experience… Despite the fact that Gianna’s penchant for aiding Detroit’s underprivileged is the same kind of altruism that got his wife killed… Despite the fact that Gianna pushes all his insecurity buttons… This time, Joe will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
And Gianna protects those she loves just as fiercely. Together they’ll fight to save each other and their love... Or die trying.

How does a young woman, raised in the affluent neighborhood of Grosse Point, end up living in one of Detroit's highest crime neighborhoods? One that has a mind of her own to live among those who need a hand-up.
I loved this book... from the opening paragraph to the closing scene! Theresa Rizzo has created characters so real that you feel you truly know them. Add the well-researched information regarding the Mafia and the strong bonds of Italian families, and you have an award-winning combination. Every time I thought I had the plot figured out, Theresa threw in more twists and turns in the story line which kept me guessing to the very end!
Silent Sentry is one of the best books I have read in a long time! Thank you, Theresa, for pouring your creative talent into this wonderful story!
I received a complimentary digital copy of Silent Sentry from author Theresa Rizzo for my honest review.
